The Owensboro Community and Technical College Foundation, Inc. were established June 10, 1986 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation to support the purposes and mission of OCTC.
The Foundation plays an instrumental role in actively assisting both students and the college by supporting the advancement of public higher education and serving as the college's chief fundraising agent. The Foundation increases financial and educational resources through development initiatives, establishes communication networks with private donors and public agencies, and provides support for programs and activities not funded through traditional sources.
Launched during Fall 2008, this annual campaign puts an emphasis on the costs associated with getting an education. Donors are encouraged to give the cost of one credit hour, one class, one semester or one year to assist in the campaign's main initiatives. Donations can be designated toward Student Scholarships (restricted or unrestricted), Emergency Student Funds, Innovation Funds or Unrestricted.
